Sandler, a leading nonwovens manufacturer, exhibited successfully at this year’s Techtextil trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens that took place in Frankfurt, last month. Participating for the 15th time, the family-run company welcomed an international audience to the home of innovative nonwoven solutions – Sandler’s 90-sqm Home Garden showcased latest developments for room acoustics, transportation and filtration.

According to the manufacturer, the trade fair yet again provided Sandler AG with an ideal presentation platform. Product novelties, processing technology, mechanical engineering, raw materials—various topics presented themselves. To visitors in search of innovative materials the variety of products and the range of applications and possibilities for customisation were a source of inspiration,” the company explains.

“Customers and new contacts approached the booth with specific problems, finding nonwoven solutions through lively talks with the Sandler team. All in all, Sandler AG is once again looking back on a very successful trade fair participation, during which latest nonwoven innovations quite literally set the tone at the Sandler booth.”

Acoustic partitions

Acoustic partitions made of self-supporting nonwovens provided spatial as well as acoustic separation for a conference corner at the booth, and—among the products on display—they were also the main magnet for visitors, according to the manufacturer.

“Available in different thicknesses, densities and degrees of solidification these textile sound absorbers help render every room quiet and comfortable,” the company reports. “Even amongst the everyday hustle and bustle of open plan offices or, in this case, exhibition halls they reliably dampen sound, creating optimal conversational acoustics.”

Various opportunities of surface finishing also make these all-rounders visual highlights: Printed with various motifs, laminated with coloured fabrics, flocked to create a roughcast look, or enhanced with a coating made of natural materials such as hay or cornflowers. The possibilities are manifold and drew the visitors’ attention.

Building acoustics

A playhouse demonstrated the wide range of applications for Sandler nonwovens in our homes—from impact sound insulation to insulation between the rafters, from insulation for hot water tanks to pipe insulation in solar systems, and from sofa upholstery to filters in air-conditioning systems.

In addition, the recyclability of the materials showcased and therefore their contribution to sustainable product solutions again was another point of interest for the professional audience.

Synthetic filter media

With regard to synthetic filter media, materials for enhancing indoor air quality in heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning were in high demand. The latest Sandler product line enAIRsave is said to combine excellent filtration performance with good energy efficiency, attaining a favourable rating according to the requirements of new testing standards.

Nonwovens for transportation industry

Sandler nonwovens for the transportation industry include textile absorbers, that insulate engine and driving noise as well as heat. The new product lines sawasorb advanced and sawasorb premium were the main topics.

Offering sound absorption at low product thickness, sawasorb advanced is an ideal alternative for narrow installation spaces, according to the manufacturer. sawasorb premium encompasses the high-performance range of absorbers in Sandler’s product spectrum. Product variants for interior as well as exterior applications are available.
